Re: ditch profile & alignment assembly question

If you switch from the Roadway mode to the Layout mode in Subassembly Composer's Preview pane then you should see what it will look like when inserted into a subassembly in Civil 3D. This setting ignores all targets for calculation purposes since there are no targets associated with an assembly prior to being part of a corridor. You will need to change some of your default values that the targets override in order to get a link to display (you will want to change a 0 somewhere).
